We Have a Winner – CAvE

Philip HarrisAcceptances, WritingLeave a Comment

Friday the thirteenth turned out to be lucky for me – my science fiction flash story CAvE has been accepted by Nebula Rift magazine. I’m not sure when it will be out yet but obviously I’ll be posting here when it’s available. Fun Fact: This will be the second time I’ve appeared in a FictionMagazines.com title. The first time was in their eHorror magazine with Happin3ss101.com. [We Have a Winner – CAvE by Philip Harris first appeared on Solitary Mindset on Friday the 13th(!) June 2014]

There’s been a bunch of rejections alongside those acceptances of course and somehow I managed to forget I’d received a rejection from one of my favourite magazines so when I found it again I got to experience the disappointment for a second time. Not ideal. Still, we’ll ignore the rejections for now (although I do have a post about rejection to make at some point). I managed to squeak out 759 words of The Ghost Smuggler on Sunday which was actually pretty good – for some reason I was extremely tired. I also revised my Valentine’s Day story, The Ordeal (Season One, Episode Thirteen) and I think it’s pretty close to being ready to send out. Tonight I’m planning on spending some more quality time with The Ghost Smuggler, I’ve already come up with some revisions to my rewrite that I think will make things even tighter.
